President Obama’s been telling us that the rich folks need to pay their fair share of taxes. Someone needs to educate him. The upper 50% of wage earners already pay approximately 97% of the income taxes collected in this country. So, what’s he talking about? What is his angle?
The president said that Republicans only want to cut taxes and cut spending. He said, while offering no plan of his own, that conservatives did nothing to promote increasing government revenue. If the economic climate favors businesses, more people will be hired – which would then add to the taxpayer’s numbers, thereby increasing dollars coming into the treasury. He doesn’t understand this simple concept. I’ve noticed he’s now using the term corporations, instead of big business. But we know he’s talking about those pesky capitalists. Those who take the risks deserve the rewards, Mr. President.
Karl Marx, the father of modern Communism, referred to capitalists as vampires sucking workers’ blood. He felt the worker class was exploited by capitalists. Communists like to divide people into economic classes to alienate them from each other. Trust me, I know. They love to talk about the upper, middle, and lower classes. The Manifesto of the Socialist Party of Canada talks about class struggle. This document, written in 1944, states that common property (private property, seized by government) will remove “the greatest of the burdens resting today on the backs of the workers.” My own father, a self-admitted Communist, told me many times that capitalists make money off the backs of the workers.
Once again, President Obama spoke today about the debt ceiling debate. And, once again he divided us. The great divider said, “We can’t balance the budget on the backs of the very people who have borne the biggest brunt of this recession. We can’t make it tougher for young people to go to college or ask seniors to pay more for health care or ask scientists to give up on promising medical research because we couldn’t close a tax shelter for the most fortunate among us.” I understand you don’t have to be a Communist or a socialist to slam the rich. If he’s not either of those, though… what is he talking about?
